Haddock fish and chips review - portion fine - fries very good but the batter tasted burned. I believe the oil used was long past it's best before date. You may ask why we didn't complain but the simple fact was that we needed to...More

Large selection of beers on tap, looks like an English style pub but clearly the name and decor are the only similarity. Guinness is the only beer close to home. Food was mediocre at best, I ordered full English breakfast, beans were dried paste, two...More

A decent pub with good service. It tries to be British by serving Bass and Boddingtons, sadly those are things that nobody in England has ordered in a decade but top marks for trying. “Imports” like Stella are expensive but local beers are very reasonable.

We visited here twice, once just for a drink then again for tea before going to the theatre. Food and service great. Portion sizes not massive but very nice.

I went to Elephant and Castle yesterday for lunch prior to a Mirvish show. First of all, Mirvish card holders get a discount which is awesome (that's why we went). It was truly exceptional. My mother had the Butternut Squash soup and she could not...More

Met a friend for lunch there and had great food. I ordered the chicken mandarin salad which was lovely. She had fish tacos which were good but got one that tasted "fishy" so did not eat it all. Servers were excellent and a definite high...More

Calamari looks like the end bits that have been floating around in the fryer. Cajun ceaser wrap left something to be desired. Drinks were great. Prices are reasonable. The space is beautiful and clean but the set up doesn't feel comfortable enough to stay for...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
